NUS Saw Centre Presentation: Trading Against the Crowd

NUS Saw Centre Presentation: Trading Against the Crowd

2 Oct 2006

Dear Members,

Efficient market theorists contend that markets are random and thus not predictable. However, many of today’s professional money managers rely on investor sentiment for improved market timing. They know that at the extremes of market sentiment, markets tend to be the most predictable. Through his studies, Mr John Summa, a noted author, economist and professional trader, convincingly shows that investor sentiment can be incorporated into profitable stock and stock market trading systems. In this talk, Mr Summa will explain how to use popular gauges of crowd psychology, such as put/call ratios, option-implied volatility, short sales, investor surveys, and advisory opinion to trade against, or contrary to, prevailing market sentiment.

Further details on the programme may be found here.

Time: 6.30pm – 7.30pm

Venue: Hon Sui Sen Auditorium, NUS Business School, National University of Singapore
